attack on the obama administration. and on regular americans all across the country. senate republicans are vowing to block richard cadre, president obama's pick to head the consumer financial protection bureau. that's the agency elizabeth warren set up to make sure big banks don't prey on regular americans. but, today, 43 republicans sent a letter saying they're worried the agency has too much power over the banks. and they won't allow the nomination to go ahe. this is outrageous. the right wing is doing everything it can to block this president. to stand against working class people. and to stand up for wall street. that i had' they're even willing to hurt the economy itself. it's that's what it takes to hurt the president, they're willing to do it. >> any immediate economic setback or the perception of one could weaken obama's clout. maybe a sour economy is worth it if it will distract obama. >> there's a lot of talk these days about how the gop can come back politically. the quickest possible way politically with a contracting economy, if it happened again in the next quarter, that'
with this big one. is barack obama going for it? is he becoming one of the great president presidents in history? i'm talking to use his word, "transformational." and is he using the country's historic demographic shift to do it? can he combine the new american power of hispanics with the immediate aspirations of women to lob himself into the highest level of presidential greatness? this is what his adversaries fear. they look at his working of the gun safety crusade. his distancing of himself from triumphing over the hard, often bizarre right wing of this country toe do it. i've got to msnbc political analysts to answer the question. howard fineman and joy reid. first of all, i want to ask you both about these numbers here. these are numbers for the next election, 2014. right now the democrats are about 17 votes shy of taking over the house of representatives. they're about five votes ahead of where they have to be to hold the senate. can they do it? can barack obama leave office having won back the united states congress and then, of course, aiming toward the second goal of his greatness, gett
>> president obama calling for unity, urging the country to stand together as one. it's a theme he has hit throughout his presidency. but from the day he took office, we've seen plotting to destroy his work, we've seen disrespect of destruction and personal attacks. today, president's day. today is an honor to respect all of our great country's presidents. but every day should be president's day. the president is the leader of the country. and regardless of your politics or even your vote in the last election we all must respect the office of the presidency. it's okay to disagree. but it's not okay to be disagreeable. it's not okay to call the president a socialist. it's not okay to point in his face. it's not okay to question his place of birth. it's not okay to claim your number one-on-one goal is to defeat the president. i disagreed with nearly everything the bush a administration did. i questioned the reasons we went to war, i criticized his tax cuts for the rich. i everybody led marches against his administration. but i meant with president bush. i always had respect for the p
between president obama and the press corps comes not only budget cuts or immigration or guns but over golf. an outing with tiger woods sparks complaints that the president is stiffing the white house press, even as he talks to local tv types and hangs out on google. >> this is not about a trivial issue like a golf game. we don't really care about the president's score. we care about access to the president of the united states, whether as a democrat or a republican. >> does the press have a case or does this amount to whining? for years now we've heard david axelrod and robert gibbs defend their boss. >> well, of course, the pamphlet reflects the ideas that the president is advanced throughout this campaign about where we need to go as a country building on the progress that we made. >> i think you're going to see an exceptionally strong debate performance tonight from the president. i think you'll see somebody who will be strong and passionate and energetic. >> now, they're resurfacing as msnbc commentators. is the network becoming an obama administration in exile. >>> journalists we
the odds of the obama gun control just dropped about 15 points. >> new jersey governor chris christie is running for reelection but it's difficult to tell whether he is running as a democrat or republican. we have the bromance over hurricane sandy and he wants to raise the minimum rage where the unemployment rate is much higher is much higher than the national average. so a big miss for the but go guy. >> a hit to our colleagues in the media who are faurlg calling al gore on his hypocrisy. i think he expected the loving attention from various tv networks and instead, a lot of anchors and hosts were asking him how he could sell current tv to big oil, al-jazeera and that network that has lauded and celebrated terrorists to boot. good for the media. >> paul: mark it down, freeman praises media. a press release. [ laughter ] >> paul: if you have your own hit or miss, send it to us. that is it for this week's show. thanks to my panel and all of you watching. i'm paul gigot. hope to see you right here next week. >> jon: on fox news watch. >> i think hillary will go down as one of f
. ought to be more exciting than usual. let's see. president obama's state of the union address last night lasted almost exactly 60 minutes, with not quite 7,000 words. it was a little longer than average in terms of word count. the speech was interrupted 83 times for applause, according to a tally by the national journal. there was no notable disruption in the audience this year, no moment like a republican congressman yelling "you lie" the way congressman joe wilson did during the joint address to congress back in 2009 there was no moment like a supreme court justice muttering a rebuttal to the president from the rows up front the way justice samuel alito did in 2010. there was one moment of the speech, though, last night where you heard something from the room. you heard a gasp from the room in response to something that the president said. >> we should follow the example of the north miami woman named desiline victor. when desiline arrived at her polling place, she was told the wait to vote might be six hours. as time ticked by, her concern was not with her tired body or aching feet, b
>>> let me finish tonight with this. the obama administration has found a way to offer birth control to women who want it without infringing on religious belief. it's a victory for the president and roman catholics. how do we ensure that women get birth control? how do we insure that religious institutions aren't forced to pay for it? access to stand-alone-coverage. changes where they will put their policies on sale. the key here is it gets around a pair of goals that were in conflict, are not anymore. one goal is to reduce dramatically the number of unwanted pregnancies. regular use of birth control is one way that works. in this case, the catholic church is protected from having to pay for birth control insurance. my own idea is the solution the obama reached is win-win. getting birth control to women for free will help to make it free. to keep the catholic church out of that transaction makes it no less beneficial to the goal of averting unwanted pregnancies. and with them in many cases, the decision to have an abortion. this is what good, smart, progressive morally uprigh
have president obama's back. he has given us everything we asked for, a really bold plan. he has taken his message to the public. progressives will show him we will get his back on this fight and creates an incentive system where he is bold on every single fight. we're going to be there getting his back every step of the way. >> adam green of, thank you so much. that's "the ed show" show. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening. >> good evening. and thanks to you at home for joining us this hour, where we have breaking news. breaking news about a story we have been covering in detail all this week. and frankly, for a lot longer than that. tonight for the first time, more than a year after its existence was first leaked to "the new york times" after rejecting multiple freedom of information act requests, which eventually became lawsuits demanding its release, after more than a year of refusing to officially either confirm or deny its existence, tonight the president of the united states has ordered release to congress his administration's legal reasoning for why the admi
>>> mr. speaker, the president of the united states! >> president obama now just hours away from that storied speech before congress and the nation and the state of our union. hi, everybody. i'm thomas roberts. topping our agenda today, must-see tv. the address that will set the stage for the second half of the obama presidency, and the president is expected to expand his agenda, laying out the goal markers that will define his legacy in office, with a focus on the economy and job creation. >> to mobilize the american people, build support for his proposals, and push the republicans through public pressure and through public opinion. proposals to grow the economy, to deal with immigration, to address gun violence, that have majority support in the country. >> the question remains, will the president strike a softer tone than he did in his inaugural address? will he reach across the aisle, or draw another line in the sand? >> this is the last best shot he has to move the needle. there's a little more pressure on the president to have an effective state of the union, because this i
obama has the power to order the killing of americans in counterterrorism strikes around the world. look at this. ever since anybody knew such a document existed, this is how the administration has been coping with requests to see this document. this is a letter from the justice department telling the aclu that they neither confirm nor deny the existence of the documents described in your request. quote, the fact -- excuse me -- the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such diagnostics is itself classified. that's what they've been saying for more than a year. but now as of tonight, the administration admitted that that legal reasoning memo exists. the associated press first breaking the news late tonight. nbc news confirming it. the president has directed the justice department to give the memo to the intelligence committees in congress. it is the first time that this will have been seen outside the administration itself. now, the administration has openly in speeches and in public comments asserted that it believes it is acting within the law when president obama or some other
happened last year, this year, the aftermath was even weirder, as you know, the first lady, michelle obama awarded the best picture oscar, live from the white house, via satellite, and the oscar went to "argo," regarding the canadian embassy in iran, smuggling the diplomats out of tehran, during the hostage crisis in 1979. as you can imagine, iran's state-run media was not at all excited about the best picture comment. as you can see, argo wins oscar in hollywood's dirty anti-iran game. this year they decided they would instead enhance first lady michelle obama. about that, that is not what first lady michelle obama wore last night at the oscars. the image here is kind of tiny, but as you can see, iran's state-run media digitally altered michelle obama's shoulder-bearing gown with the low-cut neck line, and made it look as though she was wearing a sparkly t-shirt. they photo-shopped her into a whole new outfit that she did not wear. the website, "enduring" ran that. i know people love the oscars, i know that watching what iran state tv does to the oscars the day after is always better than
. >> jon: president obama and hillary clinton sharing a wonderful moment in prime time. 60 minutes interview getting raves and also criticism what could be a squandered opportunity to ask hard questions. cbs correspondent steve kroft reacted to the critics. >> i've been doing had these interviews with him since a few weeks before he declared his candidacy. so i covered him through the campaign and kept doing it in the white house, but i think it's a question of fairness. we have not -- i think we're not going to play gotcha and we're going to make him look stupid. we'll let him answer the questions. >> jon: that sound might be mike wallace rolling over in his grave. >> croft, candidate obama knows he can come and answer the questions. but the puff ball question, there are plenty have questions you can ask that are hard but ron fornay summed it up. it was like clinton and obama like a old happy married couple. they wonder if he will do that with vice president biden. >> here is what they wrote this week. it was something would you expect from the state run media. it was that kind of
training. >> that was nbc's miguel alma gar ra reporting there. >>> president obama will be putting the final touches on his state of the union speech for tomorrow night. nbc's brian moore has this preview. >> reporter: the economy, jobs and the middle class are expected to be center stage tuesday night as president obama delivers his fourth state of the unnon address. while foreshadowing his second term agenda, the president will also be trying to take the high ground from republicans in the fight over budget cuts. >> they'd rather ask more from the vast majority of americans and put our recovery at risk than close even a single tax loophole that benefits the wealthy. >> reporter: the president and democrats are demanding what they see as a fair balance. >> so what we do need is more revenue and more cuts. >> what i would like to see that is in big, balanced, bold promos sal. >> if interest's no deal by march 1st, deep, automatic spending cuts kick in. >> these indiscriminate reductions do not make sense and we're going to hurt a lot of people and it's up to the president to act no
and prosperity republican party believes eric cantor is a lost soul. >> there is no resistance to obama anywhere. and it will get worse even from this point. there is no political impetus. there is no perceived upside for republicans for standing in the way of obama. it is because of who obama is and what his policies are. and the perception that the american people massively support it all. and that is why cantor is saying we're going to have to do a better job of explaining who we are. we need to do a better job of explaining why we are doing what we are doing. that is -- i think -- that epitomizes of how lost they all feel. and right now, folks, there is no fight. there is no desire for any opposition of any kind. >> joy reid, wouldn't you like to live in rush limbaugh's world, where i quote" there is not any resistance to obama anywhere." that is rush limbaugh world. >> he is kind of loveable. he is sad, they should just rename the party the peace, love and puppy's party and have everybody over and have a slumber, it is hilarious to watch the despair on the right. >> there is no opposition i
national press secretary to the obama 2012 campaign, and republican strategist chip saltsman. all right, let's dive in and first off, let's talk about what we can expect tonight from the state of the union. and as we have watched over the years, we've been listening to a president that has sounded hopeful, but will we hear someone that sounds more aggressive? let me remind everybody what we've heard in the past. >> we don't quit. i don't quit. let's seize this moment to start anew. i'm not sure how we'll reach that better place beyond the horizon, but i know we'll get there. i know we will. we do big things. there is no challenge too great, no mission too hard. as long as we are joined in common purpose. >> so "the new york times" is out saying that they are watching and what to watch for, the signs of president obama. take a listen to this. "many will watch as well for the signs of the state of barack obama. he is relaxed, more voluble, and even more confident than usual. these people say, freer to drop profanities or dismiss others' ideas, enough that even some supporters fear the pot
is happening. this is the fifth budget showdown between president obama and congressional republicans since 2011. and they usually all look the same right now. in these final days, yeah there is posturing. it doesn't stop. but the real focus, the real activity moves to frenzied, almost around the clock negotiations. but not this time, there are no negotiations happening. not at all, actually. everybody is talking, in fact, talking a lot. just not to each other. today, president obama flew to virginia, where he said this. >> all we were asking is to consider the tax loopholes and the deductions that the speaker of the house, john boehner said he is willing to do just a few months ago. he said there were loopholes and deductions you could close. said you could raise $800 billion or trillion by closing loopholes, i don't think that is too much to ask. i don't think that is partisan, the majority of american people agree with me. the majority of new port news agrees with me. we need to get this done. >> speaker boehner, your turn. >> to be clear, no revenue increases. we're not -- the president
, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. president obama is tackling tough issues. but all the beltway wants to talk about is skeet shooting at camp david? this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> our law enforcement officers should never be outgunned. on the streets. >> the president pounds away on gun safety as shiny objects dominate the beltway media coverage. >> how often does the president go skeet shooting? and are there photographs of him doing so? >> tonight, i'll take the fourth estate to task for missing the big picture with katrina vanden heuvel of the nation and msnbc's richard wolffe. >>> plus, minneapolis mayor rt rybak on how he is lowering gun violence in his city, and how he thinks senate majority leader harry reid needs to get to work on guns. >>> the boy scouts are getting ready to end their policy of discrimination against gays, and the president is standing with them. >> should scouting be open to gays? >> yes. >> i'll tell you how conservatives are fighting the process. the. >>> it's the super bowl commercial everybody is talking about. >> god looked down on h
on a grand scale. there is no question the president obama and the democratic party want to take things away from successful americans. is that not an attractive proposition to most people as the polls say. but the right has not been able to articulate the danger of the nanny state and socialistic philosophy. there is always people that see themselves as victims and want to be paid for their perceived suffering. we have always had that. now those people are in a comfort zone because share victimization is not being challenged. it's being encouraged by the obama administration. once the nanny state victimization mentality begins to get hammered in an effective way, it will quickly fall apart as fair-minded hard working americans reject it. therefore, the left has not won in america, not yet. that is a memo. the top story, reaction joining us from denver, mary and las vegas, juan williams, both fox news analyst. the left in america, juan, is victorious, is it about to win? where is it? >> no, the fact is if you look at governor's mansions around the country, more republicans there, more republ
, you're right, andrea. i mean, i think president obama can now go back and say look at the fourth quarter of 2012. things are starting to work. one interesting note, though, his inaugural address got lots and lots of attention. one thing that wasn't really in there in any specificity was the economy. it's a way forward on how she thinks the next right steps or what he thinks the next right steps are on the economy. there's some sort of gray area here in where he wants to head. >> now, before we get to chuck hagel, the sort of train wreck that happened yesterday, ruth marcus, the white house is coming out or hhs is coming out with new rules to liberalize the guidelines so that religious institutions are somewhat insulated, somewhat more insulateded. first of all, they're going to more broadly define religious institutions. also, give a separate provider so that the religious institutions themselves don't have to provide birth control to their employees. >> well, first of all, you said white house, and even though hhs issues these guidelines, one can be fairly sure that the white ho
, congress may allow a severe budget cut to take place. >> president obama tries to turn up the heat on congress. >> congress has to act. >> another day, another crisis, another countdown in the so-called sequester. >> the harshest budget cuts. >> cuts would be so painful for both sides. >> won't help the economy or create jobs, it will eviscerate the job-creating investments. >> just ten days left to prevent $85 billion in spending cuts. >> the sequester. >> the sequester. >> the sequester. >> it won't consider whether we're cutting some bloated program or a vital service. >> it doesn't make those distinctions. if congress allows this meat cleaver approach. >> people are getting hysterical. >> thousands of teachers will be laid off. >> the president is count iing the republicans again. >> the president promised it would happen, he is the commander-in-chief. >> he would like to replace it. he has not put details out there. >> there is a stalemate, just ten days -- >> these cuts are not fair. >> the sky is falling, the sky is falling. >> they don't have to happen. congress has to act.
little problem he had. the fox news called it, ohio had voted for obama this past november. >> do you believe that ohio has been settled? >> no, i don't. >> it may be that barack obama wins the state. but it seems to me that u you know, you've got a lot of votes yet to cast. >> well, in an attempt to convince rove he was gone, called fox news hoesz megan kelly took an on-camera walk to the fox decision desz k. >> we'll do a little interrogation and see if they standby their call. notwithstanding the doubt that karl rove is attempting to place. keep coming. here we go. this is the decision desk. now we're in the heart of the decision desk room. you tell me whether you standby your call at ohio given the doubts that karl rove just raised. >> we're actually quite comfortable with the call in ohio. >> my god, there you have karl rove who has ridiculously put himself to the hard right, a fox, saying fox makes the call as good people across the country at the time and he says i don't like that. what's the matter with you guys? >> other than everything that was on msnbc and nbc, that was my
of american life. we saw it from colin powell, brian williams and president obama himself. colin powell went on the sunday shows and talked about the so-called dark vein of intolerance that was running throughout the republican party. now, what evidence did he provide for that assertion? that we're not left wing, that we don't believe in climate change or that we don't believe in redistribution of wealth or that we don't believe in obamacare, and if we would just move to the left, suddenly that would make us not racist. now, colin powell above all should know how not racist our party is considering how much of our party were willing to support him in 1996. this is somebody who's treated very well by the republican party. now colin powell is on the left, and that means that we are the bad guys. president obama did it in his inaugural address just last week also. he said there was a peculiar line in his speech where he said absolutism is not principle, and he said that name calling is not discussion. he then proceeded to spend the rest of his speech name calling and avoiding principle and bein
, the bully pulpit itself. has any other president used it much to his advantage than president obama? >> i think it's true he is doing it and with all of the uniforms behind him he is making the point. the big point was about his third paragraph when he said we are not able to send an aircraft carrier into the persian gulf. imagine that situation if we face a crisis over there and the sequester and the failure and continuing resolution to be continued or any of the gamesmanship on capitol hill. they weren't able to defend our country over there. i think he really laid it down to these guys. this is an advantage he has. as you said, the bully pulpit, it's an old term by teddy roosevelt and means the president can get out there and make a point. it's a great pulpit. the republicans don't have such a pulpit. they can put up someone like boehner or someone like rubio and it's never an even match because the public will not pay that kind of attention and is no one else to speak like this. obama knows he has an advantage. he can speak for the administration. there is no one in congress that can
is getting as wide as the grand canyon. watch how they do it. president obama wants to keep the government going. pretty simple, huh? republicans threaten to stop it. it's relentless, the fiscal abyss, the debt ceiling. different words, different deadlines all detonate the same explosion. they threaten to crash the government if they don't like the way it's doing something. if they don't like who the american people have elected as republican. isn't what the republicans did in the old days? if they didn't like a government somewhere, guatemala, iran, chile, they just brought it down. guess what? republicans are now using the same tactic here at home. if they don't like who we have elected as president, they find some way to undermine the president. whatever it takes to destroy it. we are using in this country the same old cold war cia tactics to destabilize our own country. look at the impact this constant threats to shut down the government have been having on public confidence. it's all in the ratings. it's undermining it, making people forever nervous about the basic ability of america
, about who won and lost. >> obama care is the law of the land. >> when we look back, we'll be better off. >> one week from today, the sequester spending cuts go into effect. it happens. president obama's unwillingness to put a plan on the table. >> the president laid out no plan to eliminate the sequester and the harmful cuts that will come as a result of it. it is incumbent upon the president and senate democrats to show us their plan, to stop the sequester from going into effect. >> march 1st, the day that the devastating sequestration cuts, the president's sequestration cuts take effect and we've yet to hear a plan from the president. we need the president to lead and come forward with his proposals. >> it is the president who proposed the sequester. it is the president who designed the sequester. the president gave a speech showing that he would like to replace it but has not put any details out there. >> no plan, we need a plan, the president needs to come forward with his proposals. it is the president who needs to give up the plan. i don't know if this is a failure of reading comp
lady michelle obama was on hand via satellite from the diplomatic room at the white house to give the presentation. white house photographer pete souza tweeted thought photo and the first lady is giving the honor. she sent a statement that in part read she's a movie lover and was honored to celebrate the artists who inspire us and our children. the first lady will join her husband and vice president and dr. jill biden in speaking today to the national governor's association in the state dining room. mrs. obama is going to ask that the governors work with her to help make it easier for returning veterans to transfer into civilian life. she wants states to pass laws or enact proposals that will help them get professional credentials or licenses without having to relearn or go through the motions of relearning the skill sets they already know. and that way they will be licensed for credentialed for civilian life. president obama discussed the collection of bipartisan governors from across the country last night. he asked for smart, common sense solutions to the challenges ahead in cr
that said barack obama or you gave people the option of clicking online on something that said mitt romney, more people would click on the thing that said barack obama. consistently. by a lot. in a controversial article last summer right in the heat of the campaign, an article that acknowledged what everybody else in the media already knew was true, but had not admitted outloud, the website buzz of feed finally put a headline on it and put it up in black and white. mitt romney is terrible for traffic. they mean web traffic. they did what essentially amounted to a control experiment in terms of people's interest online in the two candidates. look. 29 photos of baby barack obama versus 30 photos of mitt romney as a child. essentially, you're offering the same thing. reliably adorable childhood images of people you know now as full grown men. it's the same comparison, apples to apples. the photos of baby obama got just under 70,000 views. the photos of baby romney just over 6,000 views. that is worse than 10 to 1. okay, maybe it's a baby thing. how about if we age them a little. barack obama,
